Tri-County gives away 15 scholarships

Janelle Smith of Sheffield and Matthew Hassler of Princeton each received a scholarship from the Tri-County Opportunities Council. At its July Board of Directors’ meeting they award 15 scholarships to area students. The scholarships were made available by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity through its regular Community Service Block Grant Program. This was the 27th year the Tri-County has operated a scholarship program and has given more than $421,000 in scholarships to area students.
